Until Dawn – A Game Review

0

So, I know it’s not strictly a film but I will be doing game reviews to.

Today’s; Until Dawn

I was sceptical over this game, however, it was a pleasant surprise.

It starts of with Hannah Washington being the end of a cruel prank. She runs out if the family lodge and her twin sister Beth runs after her. However they run straight into a snow storm and unfortunately fall to their untimely death.

The twins brother Josh invites all the friends back to the lodge on the anniversary of the twins death. 

This is where you fully meet; Emily, Chris, Jess, Matt, Mike, Sam and Ashley.

Throughout the game you play as each individual character, making their choices and essentially choosing their fate. Their character traits and relationship status with each character.changes as the game goes on.

The game has interesting twists and turns along with interesting development. The game; in my mind, should have fully concentrated on the mental decline of Josh. Who you will realise as you play is becoming more and more unhinged from reality. 

Now Josh brought them all back to teach everyone a lesson of being the butt of a cruel joke. However not everything plans out the way he wants.

Obviously the game changes depending upon your choices and decisions. The main parts stay the same. Such as finding the stranger and the Wendigo’s. 

Depending on your decisions leaves you with the survivors and those who die. 

Now the game robotics are pretty naff and aren’t very responsive. But the game is so immersive that it is not a problem. 

I would honestly recommend this game to those who liked Heavy Rain and beginners to gaming.

Hacked РA Review 

0

Okay…Well…this was genuinely a pile of shit….I couldn’t watch the entire thing,I got halfway through before I had to turn it off.

The whole thing is basically a woman’s obsession with something called “the Den”. Which in a sense is Omegel. 

Now, granted it is her job and she is doing a study on it, but she isolated herself from her family, friends and boyfriend. 

Obviously the boyfriend is sick of it and their relationship does pay a price. 

What really sets things of is the hacker posting them having sex to her boss, I generally feel that is the only true remorse in the film.

Bad,bad horror

Doctor Strange – A Review

0

As a Marvel fan, I get excited about any new film they make. Up to now there haven’t really been any major let downs…until now.

Doctor Strange…what can I say. It lives up to its name; strange. The plot is pretty simple, a Doctor is in an accident and loses the ability to use his hands and goes on an adventure to try and get the use of his hands back. With me so far?

Okay, so he comes across some people who follow and ancient magical culture. The Ancient One, the leader, shows Doctor Strange how small minded in regards to the world he is.

Once he has his realisation he asks her to teach him; to which she refuses and kicks him out. However, within minutes he’s dragged back in and taught everything he needs to know.

It goes through his training process and shows his determination and his failures. There is however another plot, that of the Villain, Kaecilius. Who is furious with The Ancient One for failing him during his training. He sets out to kill The Ancient One and succeeds; which drives Doctor Strange into a frenzy.

There is a lot of fight scenes within the film but none really make much sense. The plot makes you feel as if you are on acid for most of it when it jumps between realities.

Benedict Cumberbatch’s role is well played and well designed, however the execution when filming, not so great. I feel that this is down to the script writers and not Benedict’s skill.

To be honest, I understood the hype of this film, but in reality after watching it, I felt that I had been let down by the Marvel Studios and honestly, I never want to watch this film again.

In my opinion I would list it as one of the least favourite Marvel films I have witnessed.

Rating – Overall – 5/10
